This is it! The powerful, full-bodied, strong beer which is Andechss trademark. Brewed in the traditional Triple Mash procedure and available throughout the year, not just during the "Starkbierzeit"!

When the evening passes into dusk and the day draws to a close, time goes a little slower. Just the right time for a glass of Andechser Doppelbock Dunkel. Andechser Doppelbock Dunkel mouthcoating, velvety, strong This world famous bock from Bavarias Holy Mountain is not meant to be rushed, but savoured slowly. As solid as a rock, Andechser Doppelbock Dunkel presides over the evening meal with a colour reminiscent of dark copper with nuances of fiery red. Its clear gleaming look harmonises with its firm, fine pored head. Also the aroma delights the connoisseur: soft roasted accents and a nuance of dried fruit carrying a vein of caramel. This Doppelbock Dunkel from Bavarias Holy Mountain presents a pleasant effervescence. And then theres the unmistakable flavour: mouthcoating and velvety, strong and yet pleasantly malty a powerful, robust body. At the same time, it develops an easily recognisable sweetness, embraced in roasted cocoa and a light, bitter hoppiness. Concluding with a powerful punch, this Doppelbock departs with a lingering aftertaste of quality plain chocolate. A strong Doppelbock that embodies the centuries old Benedictine brewing tradition, sip by delicious sip (original extract: 18.5%, abv: over 7.1%).

Ok, this was one of my top wants for a while, since I have a special affinity for doppelbocks. It was difficult to get my hands on due to distribution, but here goes! Pours a slightly disappointing clear mahogany brown with thin light tan head, no lacing. Aroma of slightly roasted malt, sweet caramel, and dried dark fruits. Flavor threw me off a little bit because of the depth of its complexity that I just wasnt getting from the nose. Add in slight chocolate, vanilla, exotic mixed nuts, and nougat. Mouthfeel is slick, but slightly dry. Overall heavy body, but drinks thin if that makes sense?
